Diagnosed with autism at age fifty, Anita Lesko always knew something was different--but never let that stop her. In her incredible story, she describes how she went from an uncoordinated "misfit" kid to the successful and thriving adult she is today

Lesko shares ALL her secrets to success, including:

Horse therapy to teach coordination and social skills Visualization and neuroplasticity to "rewire" the brain for success Hard work and early jobs to build skills

And most importantly, patience and perseverance.

Some of the highlights of Anita's life story include:

Graduating college and going on to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist Getting married to her husband in an all-autism wedding Excelling as equestrian and jumping fences up to six feet tall and even flying in an F-15 fighter jet

Through the framework of her impressive life, Lesko proves that you can do anything you set your mind to--and teaches you how to do it yourself.
